I came across this site while doing some research on a 1947 Chevy truck that I bought about 7 or 8 years ago. I bought the truck from a neighbor who got it running, had the engine rebuilt, and then gave up on completing the restore. Anyway, I'm having trouble finding a shop to help install a new 5 speed transmission and clutch, so I'm researching it myself to see what parts I need and what modifications will need to be done. After I have a better idea of what needs doing I'm hoping I can find someone to help with the repairs. It's come as a shock that there aren't more shops in my area, outside of KC, MO. to help do it. A shop in KC I talked with said it'd be about $5,000 for the upgrade, so I'm trying to find someone local/cheaper to help me out. Anyway, long story short, I'm sure I'm going to be learning a lot here and sharing some stories in the future.
